Song of the Week: "Kid's Allright", Bettie Serveert

The amount of information I know about this early 90's band whom hailed from the Netherlands, could fill a thimble. I know the band name, Bettie Serveert, translates, roughly, as "Service to Bettie" and was taken from the auto biography of Dutch tennis player, Bettie Stove.

I love the rag tag production and the perfectly quirky arrangement of their song (our SoTW), Kid's Allright. Carol Van Dijk's vocals are buried and fuzzed, and the guitars come out of nowhere. These cats and their DIY production remind me of Television Personalities, whom we wrote about back in October of 2009.

Enjoy Bettie Serveert.
